Lola by Marc Jacobs

Let me tell you about Lola. No not Madonna’s daughter Lourdes, but the latest hit perfume by the legendary American designer Marc Jacobs. Though she’s the second born, she is the older, more sultry sister of Jacobs’ first perfume Daisy, which was a mega-hit giving him “street cred” in the perfume world. Lola is a sensuous, fruity floral fragrance that opens with “sparkling fruitiness: pink peppercorn, pear and ruby red grapefruit.” ┬áThe heart notes are described as ultra-feminine florals: rose, fuschia peony and germanium.” Finally, Lola’s “warm and seductive” base notes consist of “vanilla, warm tonka bean and creamy musk.”

Here is Lola, in her own words, on the concept and design:

Marc Jacobs designed Lola as an electrifying, over-the-top bouquet exploding from the bottle. Twisting layers of fabric, he fashioned the sumptuous swirls of a lavish floral bouquet. The iconic high gloss cap shines with astonishing proportions and playful colors making it irresistible to touch.

Illustrating his inventiveness, Jacobs designed two unique bottle shapes. The subtle faceted voluptuous glass bottle is a rich violet that expresses the sensuality of the fragrance. The carton is an artistic interpretation of the lush iconic floral bouquet – a bright fuschia berry and plum palette plays against a dramatic matte black background.

Lola embodies imaginative elements creating a lasting impression and a must have luxury.

What’s to be said of all this flowery delight? Lola has been available since 2009, there are ample reviews out there. Here are a list of my favorites:
